Provincetown Brewing Co. (PBC) taproom is located in the heart of Provincetown, MA.

Founded on the progressive ideals that make Provincetown great, PBC is passionate about brewing quality craft beer and evoking a sense of community by reclaiming shared, revolutionary, American values, anchored on the iconic geography of Provincetown.

Activism is our ethos. Each PBC product highlights a cause or organization we care about: from LGBTQ+ rights to conservation and more, charities receive a percentage of sales from each product sold.

People from far and wide come to Provincetown and love it for its unique character. PBC is the taste that will take you back to Provincetown year round.

At Provincetown Brewing Co., we believe that quality craft beer can be an exercise in community building and giving back. Everyone who enjoys a PBC brew is participating in an act of recreational activism. Or as we call it, #draftivism. That’s because we donate 15% of all profits to specific causes and organizations that we believe in – from LGBTQ+ inclusion to environmental conservation and support of a year-round artists community on the Outer Cape.
